Surprise your employees or coworkers with elevated and thoughtful corporate gifts like flowers, personalized clothes, Milk Bar sweets, and more.

Whether you manage a lean team of five or oversee thousands across offices nationwide, you know that your employees are invaluable to the success of your business (and may deserve more thanks than simply paying their salary). 

Skip the cheap corporate trinkets and surprise your employees with thoughtful, useful options instead. Some come from our favorite startups, while others are just a click away from Amazon. With some gifts, you can even go the extra mile by customizing them with company colors, a logo, or a personal touch that truly shows your appreciation.

If your company is working from home, we hope these gifts will allow you to stay connected to both your business and each other.

The 37 best corporate gifts to thank your employees:

A cute, personalized mug

Personalized Hobby Mug, $32, available at Uncommon Goods

Perfect if you manage a small team where you know everyone pretty well, these mugs from Uncommon Goods can be personalized to your coworkers and their hobbies. They’re also relatively inexpensive and probably something they’ll use every single day. 

If you’re in charge of all the corporate gifts this year, you can also make a group corporate order with your company logo.

Famously delicious sweets from Milk Bar

Milk Bar Treats, from $27, available at Milk Bar

Milk Bar, the cult-favorite bakery based in New York, delivers its decadent cakes, cookies, and truffles to gift recipients’ doorsteps.

A small Tile Pro that helps them find misplaced items

Tile Pro, $34.99, available at Amazon

The Tile Pro is something they might not buy for themselves, but it’s immensely helpful in finding misplaced items like keys and phones. You attach one to an item that can be tracked through a free app or by pushing a button to create noise. 

A daily planner designed to fit against their keyboard

Weekly Action Pad, $20, available at Best Self

Designed to be keyboard-friendly, this calendar helps people prioritize their week, organize any tasks, and keep tabs on goals or projects. It’s made by the same company that makes one of our most-recommended planners. If you think people might enjoy another organizational resource in life or at work, this is a good gift. 

Olive oil they’ve been meaning to try from Brightland

Awake Extra Virgin Olive Oil, $37, available at Brightland

California brand Brightland makes extra virgin olive oil and vinegar that we’ve found to be full-bodied and sharp. Its recognizable white bottles protect the EVOO from light damage — and also look really nice displayed on a countertop. Find a full review here

A nice leather mouse pad

Horween Leather Mousepad, $84.95, available at Nomad

Sure, something monogrammed with the company name is nice. But a company gift doesn’t need to be so explicit either — and sometimes employees may appreciate the versatility of something timeless. This stylish leather mousepad is functional and comes with a microfiber travel bag. It’s also one of the desk accessories Insider Reviews employees swear by.

Brownies that give back

Benevolent Brownies, $35, available at Uncommon Goods

Not only are these the same delicious brownies Ben & Jerry’s uses in its ice cream, but they’re made at a B Corp that practice inclusive hiring and connects its employees with resources such as child care, community gardens, and sustainability programs. 


A comfortable seat cushion for their home office

Royal Seat Cushion, $79, available at Purple

Why not make their office setup a bit more enjoyable? We love this Purple Seat cushion because it makes sitting down all day significantly more comfortable and helps improve posture while seated. You can read a full review of the Royal Seat Cushion here.

Engraved spirits from ReserveBar

Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, $68, available at ReserveBar

Consider a bottle of their favorite spirit from ReserveBar’s corporate gifting guide. Choose from a wide variety of champagnes, tequilas, and cocktail gift sets based on your employees’ preferences.

If you’re looking to make this gift even more special, you can opt for a custom bottle engraving.

A Hydro Flask mug that regulates their drink’s temperature

Hydro Flask 12 oz. Insulated Coffee Mug, $27.95, available at Hydro Flask

This mug is a common desk companion for the Insider Reviews team. The 12-ounce coffee mug has the company’s proprietary TempShield insulation that made its water bottles famous.

This mug will keep hot drinks hot for up to six hours, and cold drinks cold for up to 24. Read our full review of it here.

An inconspicuous and stylish wireless charger

iOttie iON Wireless Plus v2 Charging Pad, $34.95, available at Amazon

They probably don’t need any more tchotchkes for their workspace. But they’ll probably appreciate the inconspicuousness and convenience of this small wireless device that charges their iPhone much faster than a standard power adapter and cable. Senior reporter Amir Ismael swears by this one.

If you’ve got a bigger budget or fewer employees to purchase gifts for, we also recommend the sleek Courant Catch 3 Wireless Charger, even for $100.

This subscription sends your giftee single-origin teas from the best tea-growing regions in the world for six months. You can also opt for coffee

Starbucks gift cards

Gift card, from $15, available at Best Buy

Starbucks’ corporate sales program also has options that range from physical gift cards, branded gift cards, or digital gift cards delivered directly to your recipient’s email.

Mashable magnet toys from Speks

Speks Original Magnetic Balls, $34.95, available at Speks

We loved these tiny magnet toys a lot more than we expected to. Less obnoxious than fidget spinners, they’re immensely satisfying to play with and build with as you work through a problem or concentrate on a task. The set includes 512 rare earth magnetic balls, a metal building base, a plastic splitter card, a 16-page starter guide, and a carrying case. 

A box of customer favorite coffee blends from La Colombe

Greatest Hits Gifts Box, $42, available at La Colombe 

If they don’t live near one of La Colombe’s 30 locations, send them a gift set filled with the brand’s fan-favorite blends instead.

Men’s Merino Calf Sock 8-Pack, $144 on sale (originally $160), available at Bombas

Women’s Merino Calf Sock 8-Pack, $144 on sale (originally $160), available at Bombas

Part of Bombas’ appeal, other than the obvious differences in fit and feel, is that it donates a pair of socks to a homeless shelter every time someone buys a pair, which also applies to its corporate gifting program. It can work with your company’s current charity partner, or help you find the perfect donation recipient. You can fill out a corporate gifting form at Bombas here.
